Linkedin’s superpower lies in its one-of-a-kind networking capabilities. The site has the ability to help you identify key contacts in companies where you’d like to work, track down relevant recruiters and hiring managers as well as find other important contacts who can help advance your career endeavors. You can also find out if you have acquaintances in common, which can help you earn trust and get your foot in the door.
To unlock these capabilities, you must understand the rules of boolean syntax searching and know how to navigate LinkedIn’s different search functions. In this webinar, Matt Youngquist of Career Horizons will explain the secrets of networking on LinkedIn and illustrate the powerful contact-finding tools the site offers to job seekers.
A recognized career coaching expert and LinkedIn trainer in the greater Seattle area, Matt is the founder and president of Career Horizons. To date, he has personally assisted more than 11,500 clients across the Pacific Northwest strategically manage their careers, explore their occupational options and market themselves successfully to new opportunities.
